Kim Kardashian to Attend Met Gala — Can She Top Her 2013 “Couch Dress”?
Kim Kardashian has reportedly made the guest list a second time for the annual Costume Institute Gala Benefit, aka the Met Ball, aka Vogue magazine’s most A-list red carpet event. Honestly, considering her recent record-breaking issue of the fashion bible, we feel like the invite’s a given. But what’s still unknown is whether she can outdo her look from last year!
Nearly a year ago, a very pregnant Kim made waves and inspired memes when she showed up to the ball dressed head to toe in a rose-print gown by Givenchy. The dress, which had gloves built into the sleeves, had many folks opining that the reality star’s looked less like a dress and more like a sofa one might find in Grandma’s living room. Kim’s frock, dubbed the “couch dress” by some, also had people comparing her to Mrs. Doubtfire.
However, we highly doubt Kim’s look this year will evoke such dowdy comparisons. With a slammin’ post-baby body to flaunt and the biggest wedding of the year just a few weeks away, we expect Kim’s Met Gala experience to turn heads for completely different reasons this go-around.
Last year’s gala theme was punk, so we’re thinking a bit more elegance will be the trend on this year’s red carpet. The theme this time will celebrate couture legend Charles James, who was instrumental in elevating mid-century fashion from mere clothing to wearable sculpture. Expect a ton of eleganza!
